Music and Tempo – Display Poster

What is music and tempo?

In simple terms, tempo is how fast or slow a piece of music is performed. When teaching your class about tempo, there are three primary ways that it is communicated to players: BPM, Italian terminology, and modern language. Use this display poster to remind your class of the differences in tempo that musical pieces can have.

Feeling a bit extra? Play some music and see if your class can work out what the tempo would be set to. What would the song sound like if the tempo was slowed down?
